Note of Caution to Brookland Drivers

From the Brookland listserv:

I wanted to take this opportunity to give a word of caution to women/and men drivers in the neighborhood. Last night when I was pulling out of our parking lot and onto Monroe St. (near the metro tracks), a man in a beat up red van frantically motioned me to roll my window down. He said my font tire was extremely wobbly and that I should pull over immediately. He offered to fix it for me if I pulled over. I turned down his offer, but he proceeded to try and convince me that I would never make it home with my tire in that condition. Nervous about my tire I turned down his offers and slowly drove home.

My husband checked my tire at home and announced that nothing was wrong with it. This was the SECOND time that this has happened to me in the last few months. I don’t know if it was the same man, or a different man, but both times I thought it smarter to keep driving. I don’t know what this man’s intent was if I were to have pulled over and gotten out of my car. I am sharing this story though, so that the neighborhood drivers can be aware that this kind of thing happening. Please be careful!
